Another major move, the New York Jets fired GM Mike Maccagnan early Wednesday. Albeit questionable, as all things Jets, coach Adam Gase is the interim general manager effective immediately.
If the first reaction is always the best reaction, then Jets fans should don their masks because this thing is likely to burst into flames. Please note, this may not necessarily qualify as unexpected as this is, well, the Jets we are talking about.
Unfortunately, the recent firing and hiring event sends a message fatigued New Yorkers are tired of feeling — it still feels like winter and when it finally warms up it could be too late.
Just when you think they’re not going to #Jets. They Jets.

Let the current state of the #Jets sink in:
They 1) Allowed Maccagnan to pick the head coach2) Allowed Maccagnan to spend all their money in free agency3) Allowed Maccagnan to run their draft
Now they’ve … fired Maccagnan
That’s incompetence like I’ve never seen before

Seemingly, Mike Maccagnan was making decisions for a future he saw himself a participant. In hindsight, would he have approached the signing- off on hiring Adam Gase differently. Notwithstanding, the growing dissent and disdain throughout with each personnel decision forced a break.
Sure, the $120 million dollar spending spree on C.J. Mosley, Le’Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder, Henry Anderson may have forced his subsequent hacking. But, the hatchet has no name and it’s swings on its own schedule.
With remaining questions like: was Adam Gase really ticked “off a little bit’ by the rumors? Did Mike really have no clue? Why wait until now? We can carry on as there is still much more in store.
